“Pin-Up” of the Week: Honus Wagner 1924 Mrs. Sherlock’s Home Made Bread Pin

There was some big Honus Wagner news (although not very surprising) this week.  Bill Mastro admitted that he trimmed the infamous T206 Honus Wagner tobacco card he purchased for $25,000 in 1985.  Its no surprise to most collectors.  Everyone that has owned that card has made money on it, except for Ken Kendrick who is the card’s current owner and owner of the Arizona Diamondbacks.  Mr. Kendrick might have a difficult time making a profit after Mastro’s little announcement.  That’s if he ever decides to sell the card which he purchased for $2.8 million back in 2007.

If you don’t have the cash for a 1909-11 T206 Honus Wagner, you could always settle for one of his many other collectibles ,like this pin.  The 1924 Mrs. Sherlock’s Home Made Bread set consists of 10 pins – Grover Alexander, Ty Cobb, Rogers Hornsby, Walter Johnson, Rabbit Maranville, Paddy Moran, Babe Ruth, George Sisler, Tris Speaker, and Honus Wagner.  These were offered as a premium for people that purchased Mrs. Sherlock’s Home Made Bread.  Pins from this era are highly collectible.  The Wagner can sell for $100.00 to over a $1,000 depending on its condition.
